Killzone 2 also victims of war metacritic

A while ago Resistance 2 was voted down because of the metacritic war between the PS3 and X360 fanboys. Now it's the turn of the big PlayStation exclusive Killzone 2, because the first review was posted on metacritic.

lol expect the score to go down even further, the envy is strong for this one

MasFlowKiller3244d ago (Edited 3244d ago )

I hate Fanboys, but i guess if gametrailers gets to review this game why cant other 360 fanboys too?

ill base my review on IGN and 1UP, maybe even gameinformer and gamepro but i wouldn't count on it

FaSeCeX3244d ago

i will still buy it..it will still sell very well...n metacritic will still suck as usual

I guess this shows the desperation and the jealousy of the fans of the other platform.

Dopee3244d ago

Who really didn't see this coming? I don't eben know what people gain from putting false scores in on this site.
How many people will now actually go to this site and it will make them nop longer want to purchase Killzone 2?

joesomebody23244d ago (Edited 3244d ago )

Expect this for God of War 3, Uncharted 2, GT5, Heavy Rain...
shoot they might even go after the next pixeljunk...

jwatt3244d ago

I actually find it funny and flattering, If I were a hardcore 360 fanboy I would be jealous of Killzone too.

bennyace3244d ago

I have all 3 consoles but i prefer the xbox 360 since i had it for longer, but i would never waste any of my time to try and make a ps3 game look bad it s just to ridiculous. those people must be under 10 years old or at least they are mentally. like all those "Xbox army or Sony task force" or whatever they call themselves. like they're on a mission or something. that's just so lame.

Cicinho3244d ago

All you idiot fanboys build the hype up so much that the game will never reach the orgasmic better than sex experience your all hoping for. LBP a great game but fanboys say FAIL. GTA a great game but fanboys say FAIL. Gears of War 2 a great game but fanboys say FAIL.

According to fanboys any new exclusive is a fail because they all dreamt about it too much before it was released.

gaffyh3244d ago

Xbox fanboys seriously have no life. The sad thing is that they put the scores down first, PS3 fanboys just retaliated, now they're doing it again.

I see it now more as a testament to the greatness of the game, it just shows that this game is SO good, that Xbox-only owners are scared, scared that it will show how capable the PS3 is. I can smell their fear...

ape0073244d ago

so...it is true,fanboyism is a disease

doctors,hurry and invent cure for this mental disease,you'r going to earn lots of cash.

can't believe it

just imagine how they LOOK when THEY GIVE GREAT GAMES 0 SCORES

CAN'T BELIEVE IT

I've never seen anything like this,this is videogames,not war,countries,religions etc...

killzone 2 is for you

gears 2 is for you

you can enjoy them all

WTF is going on

F fanboys

Blademask3244d ago

KZ2 pretty much shut every single person up. Now its just going to be little niggle nitpicking about why the gun flares aren't 100% scientifically accurate and nonsense like that.

Everytime you get a disagree.
Every retarded low score the game gets, it just shows that the game really is what it said it was. And people are just amazingly childish.

Evidence of that or you can not mention that period.

Mr_President_3244d ago

Of course thats sounds right to you Megatron.
We expect nothing less from you fanboys. <_<

ape0073244d ago

are you joking?

you are super natural

The Lazy One3244d ago

And I wish sony would do the same so all the PS3 owners would have something better to do than troll this site...

ultimolu3244d ago

And I wish 360 fanboys would stop trolling this site and tracking me down just to slam a disagree button because they don't like what I have to say.

But...that won't happen anytime soon, now will it?

Because 360 fanboys are innocent! They can do no harm!

Raz3244d ago

I don't rely on Metacritic ratings when I decide whether I want to buy a game or not. Never have. And I don't know anyone else who does, either.

So I honestly don't get what the fuss is about. Let the babies have their bottle - getting all hot n bothered over something so stupid is exactly the response they're looking for.

3244d ago
No Way3244d ago

It's not really that Metacritic sucks, but rather stupid fanboys abusing the system.

OGharryjoysticks3244d ago

You say you will base your review on ign and 1up but that's not much better than Gametrailers bias. 1up has Shoe still lurking around even though he was such 360 fanboy they told him to quit because it started to really look bad. And ign is really just a 360 site. Sure, they have some joke of a Playstation team now, but that's because it looked really stupid having part of the site funded as teamxbox and that same site (ign) claiming to deliver fair coverage of all platforms. My best advice is to base your review on yourself and rent any game your not sure of potentially.

Fallen_Angel3244d ago

Its obvious ps3 fanboy padded the score on this game there is no way it ever deserve a 6.3

BLuKhaos3243d ago

My people. Sons and daughters of PlayStation.

For many years, we have been a broken nation. Shunt, oppressed, and conquered by those we sought to escape. 10 years ago, I asked for time, and that time was granted by you. You, the strength in my arm, the holders of my dreams.

Our forefathers embarked on the greatest exodus in the history of all mankind. An exodus for freedom. PlayStation became that freedom. Our new world changed our bodies. At first, it weakened us, but in fact, we were growing... stronger.

In the time you have given me, I have rebuilt our nation, I have rebuilt our strength, and I have rebuilt our pride! Our enemies at home have been reeducated. We have given them new insights into our cause. On this day, we stand united once more. On this day, those driven to divide us will hear our verse. On this day, we shall act as one, and we shall be ignored NO MORE!

Defenders of the PlayStation dream, NOW IS OUR TIME!

rockleex3243d ago (Edited 3243d ago )

At least those who join in the Al Qaeda's purpose were actually brainwashed.

But fanboys brainwashed themselves into a nonexistent war, trying to complete objectives that they think will help them "win the war".

The funny thing is that the media is profiting from this nonexistent war, while those fanboys gain absolutely nothing. In fact, they just lose precious time that could be spent gaming.

One would even question whether they even play games...

rockleex3243d ago

Funny how its only PS3 fanboys that troll this site according to you.

Its even funnier when 360 fanboys come onto PS3 articles, and say N4G is run by "Sony fanboys". Hmm, you're in a PS3 article, did you expect to see mainly 360 gamers? Of course, PS3 articles will be full of PS3 gamers, and they WILL defend the PS3 when it is attacked because they obviously like their PS3.

PS3 and 360 articles are both littered with fanboy trolls. If you see someone attacking the 360 in a 360 article, of course you'll defend the 360.

There's nothing wrong with you viewing PS3 articles, but if you're going to complain about how there's too many PS3 users on PS3 related articles, then you don't belong in the PS3 section.

power of Green 3243d ago

You're lucky you guys only deal with one game vs every single game shown/released etc lol.

Alvadr3243d ago (Edited 3243d ago )

This is what they do with their spare time as they have no decent exclusive games coming out this year. Boredom is setting in

madmike3243d ago

didnt you sony fan boys start lowing the scores of xbox360 games you sony ass kissers are truly are a fu.k up lot its like punching some one and then playing the victim.

monkpunk13243d ago

The lower the user score on meta the better the game......

AAACE53243d ago

I have been going to Metacritic for 2 years and this is common for exclusive games on both sides!

I will say that it has gotten worse since people started referring to metacritic reviews on N4G. So more than likely, the same fanboys here just flooded that site.

ultimolu3243d ago

So PS3 fans are supposed to take it like a b*tch, right?

When you guys start something, DON'T expect there won't be retaliation in return. You guys started this whole hateful agenda against the PS3 first. Then, when the other side retaliates, it becomes a never ending cycle.

This console war needs to end.

No Way3243d ago (Edited 3243d ago )

Well.. yes, they should.
Here is why I say this:

One thing the PS3 fans like to talk down about on the x360 is the age. PS3 fanboys always say the x360 fanbase is made up of teenagers and little kids.

And, they like to boast that the PS3 fanbase is more.. mature. When you retaliate, especially for something stupid like this, you are not being mature.

Grow up and be the bigger person, duh.

ultimolu3243d ago

And 360 fanboys are still saying to THIS day that the PS3 has no games when they know damn well it has games. Then they keep reiterating that the PS3 is just a bluray player. Then they started this metacritic nonsense. Their attitudes towards PS3 fans and the PS3 itself is what caused this retaliation and for the most part I have been guilty for being involved.

I want to go back to the days where I actually played games and didn't even know a console war was going on and this will be my New Year resolution.

No Way3243d ago

What does that have to do with anything? There is a lot of things I could say that the PS3 fanboys have said that they know is not true. But, I won't cause I'm bigger than that.

And, see, that's the difference between me and you. You get involved with this nonsense.

I, too, would like to be able to ignore all of this fanboy war bullspit, but when you talk about retaliating.. that doesn't help the "war" dissipate, or go away, all it does is root it on.

Show that your bigger than that and don't "retaliate" and maybe it will stop. Let the fanboys and kids have their fun.. you ignore it and it may stop.

But, eh, one can only wish.

The Lazy One3243d ago

double standards much? I was replying to him with a similar statement to show that it goes both ways. Do you really think I'm so naive to think that there are no 360 fanboys?

But thus, a PS3 fanboy says something stupid, he gets 20 agrees and 2 disagrees. Someone shows him why it's stupid and gets 25 disagrees...

No Way3243d ago

I know how that goes.. Sometimes I worry bout putting someone in their place cause I don't wanna lose all my bubbles. =(

meepmoopmeep3244d ago

i'm not buying it now.

obviously fanboy extremists know what a good exclusive is.

thanks for saving me $ fanboys

:)

mrdxpr23244d ago

ummm everyone needs to fined out that in the gaming world when users rate games it means sh!t cause we all know tha people be messing with ratings thats why i dont listen to reviews or user scores i just look at trailers and previews of the oficialy site and look at the pics if i like it il get it... thats why i got LBP well that and i played the LBP beta and it got me there

Raoh3244d ago

people still go to that site?

i go to gamestats.com for scores

i stopped buying into anything metacritic considers a viable source.

tatotiburon3244d ago

only a retarded pay attention to USER reviews

chasuk083244d ago

Game rankings is a good average review site aswell.

The Lazy One3244d ago

on gamefly are pretty good actually.

They're more realistic than a lot of other reviews are. I think it has to do with the people reviewing them having rented the games and having to pay for the service.

Sarcasm3244d ago

"gamefly are pretty good actually. "

I 2nd that.

And the reason for that, is because the actual owners of the game who rent for the PS3 or even 360, will rate the game accordingly because they actually own the consoles. And so far most of the ratings match my own sentiments. Much more accurate that metashitric.

Lol i tried halo wars but it wont let you review it untill its out XD

see and thats the typcial fanboy stupid nonsense that causes this stupid crap...........way to go on being douche bags

HemiHalo3244d ago

It's true. Fanboys from both sides are guilty and it's annoying as hell.

Halochampian3244d ago

It sickens me to know people hate when its done yet you openly omitted to trying to do it.

@Nathan

You are no better.

If you havent played the game, you shouldnt be giving a score. That goes both ways. Dont raise a score of a game and dont lower one.

The Killer3244d ago (Edited 3244d ago )

then sony fanboys replied with Gears of war 2 then the bots again did their job with LBP and now with Killzone 2!!

the bashing

xbots = 3 ps3 games
ps3 fanboys = 1 360 game

clearly the bots have no life accept bashing in the internet and MS supporting them by throwing some cash at some reviewers and article writers!!

every low score for Killzone 2 from the bots just shows how powerful this game is!! its flattering actually! poor them, all what MS threw at them is halo 2.5 and gears of war 1$1.5!!

GiantEnemyCrab3244d ago (Edited 3244d ago )

BS! If you think this started with Resistance 2 you don't know what your talking about. This started all the way back at Halo 3, but Meta actually went in and fixed a lot of it.

I'm not going to say who started it but stop saying it's 360 fanboys who did it first.

Oh and then go look at Halo Wars, KZ2 the biggest victim my arse. The only difference is Xbox fans aren't crying about it like fishheads cry about everything.

GiantEnemyLobster3244d ago

6.3 seems like an accurate rating to me for that game.

MGOelite3244d ago

your in denial and you know it, if they announced it for the 360 you would be off your fuking rocker
